Celebrating 9-11

It is no secret that the palestinians celebrated the September 11 attacks. And despite the PA’s early attempts to suppress this fact, they have since not hidden their joy over the attacks – at least not in their own daily newspaper, which is not intended for outside consumption.

Thanks to Palestinian Media Watch, the outside gets to consume:

The Palestinian Authority continues a long tradition of celebrating the 2001 World Trade Center terror attacks by publishing cartoons in its official daily that glorify Osama Bin Laden and the attacks, or mock the suffering of the U.S. This year’s cartoon shows Bin Laden smiling while making the “V” for victory sign with two fingers in the shape of the burning Twin Towers. The PA daily that published the cartoon, Al Hayat Al Jadida, is owned by the PA and controlled by the office of Mahmoud Abbas. The only text on this cartoon is “Exclusive to Al Hayat Al Jadida,” which means it was prepared specifically for the official Palestinian Authority daily.

Do yourselves a favor and read the whole article. You will be even more appalled that the US government is funding and supporting the PA.

Update: And they’re not the only ones. Meet James Brolin, otherwise known as Mr Barbara Streisand.

Actor and husband of Barbra Streisand, James Brolin, offered radio listeners a “Happy 9/11” Tuesday, the sixth anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the U.S., during a promotional appearance for his new movie “The Hunting Party.”

Brolin was being interviewed on the Chaz and AJ Show on WPLR, a New Haven, Conn., radio station.

During his interview on the morning radio show, Brolin’s mention of tracking down war criminals prompted Chaz to note the significance of the day, the anniversary of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Brolin, sounding surprised at mention of the anniversary, responded by wishing the radio pair, “Happy 9/11!”

The transcript follows:

Brolin: So, you know, it’s, it’s kind of a parody on how come we can’t catch war criminals with all our sophisticated stuff, you know.

Chaz: That’s something we’ve been talking about a lot today on the show for obvious reasons, the sixth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

Brolin: Right. Oh yeah. Oh, Happy 9/11!

[Long silence]

Chaz: Well, that’s kind of a weird thing to say.

Brolin: [Laughter] I heard silence.

Chaz: Yeah.

Brolin: Well …

Chaz: Well, we’re right outside of New York. I mean, I know people …

AJ: Right.

Chaz: … who lost family members so … I don’t know … we don’t say Happy 9/11 around here.

Brolin: Celebrate the day, right?

Chaz: Yeah, well, we kind of commemorate the day by remembering the people who were lost and the families that they left behind.

Brolin: I understand …

Chaz: Yeah.

Brolin: It’s a horrible situation how they’ve been left behind, even now, by, uh, anybody who might, uh …

Chaz: I think you’d be better off talking about this movie.

Last year, while appearing on “The View,” Brolin, noting his parents and grandparents had been Republicans, said he had since “started thinking for myself.” He then encouraged viewers to visit a website that argues the World Trade Center buildings fell as the result of a controlled demolition.
